    Just got my Creator C120 and flashed an Android image and booted.
    All worked perfectly but the desktop is hidden all round the sides. I think this is called overscan.
    How do I fix this ?

    Correction
    I booted without the sd card
    I was going to boot from an image once I fix the overscan

    Received my ci20 board also today, booted also without sd card. Everything looks great. But my HDMI monitor doesn’t show all. The generated display is to big to fit. Also a problem of over-scan I think.
    Would also know how to resolve this,
    thanks in advance…

    Both Android and Linux load up OK and display on my HDMI TV but both are too big
    With the Raspberry Pi this problem is easily fixed by editing the /boot/config.txt file
    but I cannot see this in on the Ci20
    Like you though, I cannot see anything on a PC Monitor

    The elinux.org page of CI20 mentions there’s a version of the HDMI driver with functional EDID part. When can we expect that in an image?

    Hi,

    Overscan is a common problem. But it is easily fixable.

    Please check your TV settings for aspect ratio/zoom settings.

    Disabling any zoom/forced aspect ratio should fix the desktop being displayed.

    Yes I can see that the answer is to buy an adapter and they are cheap enough, but I was looking to do it without.
    After all the Raspberry Pi does it without any problems on this monitor

    On a Samsung monitor selecting image size to Just Scan in the menu seems to do the trick
